UMF student’s research on winningest baseball lineup featured on WCSH 6 “207”

UMF senior and Wilson Scholar Sean Cabaniss is working on a research project recently featured on WCSH 6 “207” that may attract the interest of Major League Baseball—how to create the optimal baseball lineup. According to Cabaniss’ project proposal, there are 362,880 unique ways to create a lineup with the same nine players. With the use of mathematical Game Theory, an advanced computer simulation and the support of his two faculty sponsors, he is hoping to help answer coaches’ burning question, how to make the winningest baseball lineup.
